Eyes: Yours and Mine

I saw a mirror in your eyes
Stumbling in was paradise
A belief of love; capsuled with forever
Beckoned me and I got carried away
And there it was the hidden chest
Forbidden from all the rest
Opening it was crashing down
In a deep stumbling mess, I drowned
Like a moth is to flame
You came to me with all the blame
And fired your fiery arrows
Yet calling out to you was easy
Pretending even more so
Your blind trust and my waiting patience
Made for your journey to hell
And for my eyes to reflect heaven
You never saw the black lies 
In your white glass
But I held your eyes
As you fell 
Saw them switching emotions
Surprise, guilt, love
And then a disturbing stillness;
I loved,
But to love is to destroy


I was listening to a Taylor Swift song when the ides of writing this came to me. Can you guess the song?

Also, this piece seems to have different meanings as soon as you change the perspective. What’s yours? Tell me in the comments!

Have a nice day!

  2. omg the poem touched me, and its really filled with emotions and totally a touching poem for me. its true tho. – “I didnt know if you were the devil or the angel, yet I just knew you were like a broken frame. you were gone and it was painful, but I just kept loving you waiting for you but you never came”
